A Few Summer Things...

...before I plunge happily into Fall and Sewing Season, I mean Winter!!
Allow me to randomly scatter my Summer Do's and What-Nots before you...
I made this pillow for Cara, my uber encouraging and enabling shop owner friend! I cannot remember now whose tutorial I followed...will edit when it comes to me!
2 more cushions I made for Cara...the top one as a potential class sample(!!!), the second for her shop just because.
(These pics should firmly establish how my Summer has gone...I don't even have photos of the finished cushions! Sheesh! In my previous post, I briefly mentioned our current computer hostage situation...I just don't want to talk about it, but suffice it to say, I was already in limbo from our big move, and now, I'm really just kinda poking at things, computer wise! So I guess this is my "la la la, everything is fine" post, lol!)
My Summer days were puncuated by my first ever(!) hanging baskets and their deep vibrant colors!
They were the final inspiration for my fabric choices when I joined in on Cheryl Brickey's Meadow Mist Designs Mystery Quilt! I continue to REALLY enjoy the color and pace of this, my first ever monthly mystery quilt! 
Some play time with mini charm packs, Bread and Butter, courtesy my friend Cara!
30s Playtime, indeed! More on this one soon!
A bit of an "aqua infusion" from multiple fun sources...
Tea cup and Blueberry Park, courtesy my enabling BIL Greg :)
Great big aqua popcorn bowl and other goodies...
Seriously cute aqua pail from a lovely, unphotographed Edible Arrangement from an even lovelier neighbor!
Jelly Roll? Sugar Bloom by Verna Mosquera...IG win from Free Spirit Fabrics!!! Yes please AND thank you!! Woo Hoo!
What else? Let's see...
Right! An Amish Pot Holder/Skillet Handle Holder set, for an Amish friend :)
I think that about wraps it up for me! A very busy Summer filled with all the transitions a big move brings. Everybody working and coming and going, highly mobile! I am kinda liking this whole "civilization" thing! So, when we get back to it after this little wilderness excursion, we will see how it goes, eh?!
 Thank you so much for stopping by!
Happy Fall!
Linking up with Lorna again, finally! Let's Bee Social!

What a beautiful recap of Summer. Wish your Fall and Winter is just as exciting and full of creative inspirations and more aqua (guessing that is your favorite color)

Lots of fun new projects finished and started Sarah. So you are moving again? Or having a short term move?

What a sweet little windmill pillow... I say never pack the spring and summer sewing projects away! I find that I don't usually do much seasonal sewing, but I tell myself that should.

Ahhh... the BIL's stack again - good taste! Have fun by the snip, snip!

Hope you've settled in, love the sweet little sewing projects! Pillows are so quick and rewarding, especially love the first one! Your colour choice for the mystery quilt is gorgeous, can't wait to see that finished!

I love seeing everything you're working on, a very inspiring palette of colours, fabrics and patterns. So awesome you get to sew for your store owner friend!
